Re: T1 short-haul vs. long-haul

Yes, this is built around category 3 wiring, not 5. The specs are a
little more forgiving. Just grab any 'ole ethernet patch cord and hook
it up. Works flawlessly. Unless you're running between DSX pannels or
into another MUX, you never need to roll pairs on a T1 installation so
just wire straight through.
